A serious lack of Perspective

Congressmen John Culberson (R-TX) and Pete Hoekstra (R-MI) have no sense of perspective.

What the Hell?
Do you understand that Iranians are risking their lives to send out bits of news via social networking sites. How is that in any way similar to what you are doing? You are using Twitter to whine about Democrats in Congress not being sufficiently sensitive to your issues. In Iran, there are guys on motorcycles beating and shooting participants in anti-government rallies. You didn't get enough time to debate.

You call yourself an oppressed minority. Really. With a straight face? The Uighurs are an oppressed minority. The Lost Boys of Sudan are an oppressed minority. I don't think you know what repression is. The Democratic majority cutting off amendments is NOT repression. Repression involves cutting off body parts.

Pete Hoekstra and John Culberson, ladies and gentlemen. Putting the "Twit" in "Twitter."
